Born and brought up in Rennes (Brittany), I decided to move to Paris because of the city’s amazing architecture, history and dynamism. I wanted to combine my passion for history, art history and modern languages. So, after finishing my art history and modern language degree, I prepared and obtained my professional guiding license in Saumur. I like meeting people from different backgrounds, talking about architecture and taking visitors on a journey through French history, as well as giving insights into modern French life. One of my favorite places to take you is the Basilica of Saint-Denis because of the incredible mix of architecture, stained glass, sculptures and history. My passions? Argentine tango, impro, accompanying young people on language stays, history and architecture.
